safer neighbourhood team (snt)


The University Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) was launched In September 2010, covering Bournemouth University and the Arts University Bournemouth. The team consisted of PC Andy Scarratt and PCSO Majid Samadi with Sgt Gemma Barber overseeing the team. 

The primary role of the University SNT is to provide a police presence on the campuses and be a point of contact for all who attend the university.



Nearly 5 years on the team is well established on the campuses and has good links with both Student Unions.
The role continues to develop, building on from previous years experiences to ensure that incidents are examined to help prevent similar issues, and that Crime Prevention advice is given to staff and students to prevent them becoming victims of similar incidents.

The University SNT have an office on the BU campus in Talbot House on the 1st floor.  If staff or students have any concerns they feel the Police should be aware of please don’t hesitate to go and speak with them or email them at
